Influenza, the most common infectious disease, poses a great threat to human health because of its highly contagious nature and fast transmissibility, often leading to high morbidity and mortality. Effective vaccination strategies may aid in the prevention and control of recurring epidemics and pandemics associated with this infectious disease. However, antigenic shifts and drifts are major concerns with influenza virus, requiring effective global monitoring and updating of vaccines. Current vaccines are standardized primarily based on the amount of hemagglutinin, a major surface antigen, which chiefly constitutes these preparations along with the varying amounts of neuraminidase (NA)...

Therefore, not excluding the possibility of sporadic babesiosis disea- ses, it can be stated that within the boundaries of a vast territory, where the taiga tick is the only potential source of infection for humans, the B...

Knowledge of HBeAg status is important in pregnant women to decide immunoprophylaxis to the infant and to decide therapy in patients with HBsAg positive chronic active hepatitis. Two thousand pregnant women were tested for HBsAg by the Hoechst IHA Cellognost Kit. Those who were HBsAg positive were tested for HBeAg by ELISA (Hoechst). One hundred consecutive HBsAg positive patients admitted in hospital were tested for HBeAg by Elisa (Abott). The prevalence of HBsAg and HBeAg in pregnant women was 5% (100/2000) and 12% (12/100) respectively...
